    Thanks for response.
    Downloaded the Winrar app from your link.
    Downloaded Winrar opened and extracted all my downloaded .rar files associated with this thread.
    I don't understand why 7zip could extract my Minix .rar off another thread but not the .rars associated with this thread. Maybe my 7zip app needs an update.
    Thanks again for your response and help.

    Last Winrar version use now RAR5 format and it's always better to use Winrar to extract ;)

    Loaded USB burning tool.
    Connected U1 to laptop, I hear the connected sound and can see eject Neo-U1 in my Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media list on my laptop.
    But the U1 is not showing as connected in the USB burning tool app.
    The only difference I can see is that I am using USB burning tool v2.0.7.2 build2 which I have used successfully to burn other boxes, not the USB burning tool v2.0.6.2 build1 shown in the referred to tutorial.
    Anyone any suggestions?
    U1 is showing as Model: - NEO-U1 and Category: - Unkown in it's properties on my laptop.

    Disappointing, I had to delete the USB burning tool I had installed v7.0.7.2 and install the USB burning tool that came in the .rar in the OP v2.0.6.2.

    However, the U1 connected to my laptop as expected, burning this ROM took 1.56 minutes :) and my U1 has now booted and under About shows Android Version as 6.0.1 and Firware version as CFW002 :)

    Now to re-install and re-configure all my android Apps etc. :)

    You do? What add-on do you use?
    I just installed the pre-release Kodi 18 Leia (Alpha 2, ARMV7A 32bit)
    I randomly picked some add-ons to test on U1, and I could get sound without problem.

    I used the last night to build where Sat IPTV Skylink CZ TV works. So try to install the version you recommend. All movies are in the AC3 AVI format.

    Edit: pre-release Kodi 18 Leia (Alpha 2, ARMV7A 32bit)

    Problem sound is here. AC3 movie sound not play :-(

    Edit2: Only Kodi 17.6 no problem sound to ac3 codec.


    That's how I solved it. I downloaded the KODI 18 ALPHA 2 - 20180515 version and AC3. IS SOUND OF GOOD. THEREFORE I HAVE A REDUCTION AT TEOL VERSION OF KODI! NO PROBLEM DRM TV AND AC3 :)

    After I installed the ROM, every time U1 powered on the box goes into 'Android Recovery' menu and after I select 'Reboot system now' to start the box. The screen at the boot up from power off displays the followings:

    Android Recovery
    Use volume up/down and power.
    Reboot to system
    Reboot to bootloader
    Ap[ply update from EXT
    Apply update from cache
    Apply update from ADB
    Wipe data/factory reset
    Wipe cache partition
    Mount /system
    View recovery logs
    Power off
    Supported API: 3

    Recovery is listening adb sidload...
    E:cannot load volume /misc!

    Any suggestion, thanks.
